We revisited the well known Khosrofian and Garetz inversion algorithm [Appl. Opt.22, 3406-3410 (1983)] that was developed to analyze data obtained by the application of the traveling knife-edge technique. We have analyzed the approximated fitting function that was used for adjusting their experimental data and have found that it is not optimized to work(More)
This paper presents a model for the characterization and selection of beeswaxes for use as base substitute tissue for the manufacture of objects suitable for external radiotherapy using megavoltage photon beams. The model of characterization was divided into three distinct stages: 1) verification of aspects related to the origin of the beeswax, the bee(More)
PURPOSE This study presents a prototype of a phantom appropriate for experimental bladder dosimetry. This work presents details of the phantom construction and dosimetric results obtained using radiochromic film and optically stimulated luminescence dosimeters (OSLDs). METHODS AND MATERIALS The phantom was constructed of polymethyl methacrylate. Two(More)
